At Globsyn Business School (GBS) we believe in acknowledging excellence achieved by meritorious students in academic and extra-curricular pursuits and recognising talent from a holistic point of view. As a part of this ongoing initiative, GBS offers various scholarships to the students of its Post Graduate Management Programmes. The aim of the National Scholarship Program (NSP) is also to recognise merit from a broader perspective to include those who have excelled in non-academic areas.
The aim of the Scholarship Schemes is to provide financial relief to some meritorious students from economically disadvantaged families so that they may pursue their PG education at GBS without the burden of fee expense.
